One of my mates pc has a problem with explorer. When you click on Explorer it max's out the cpu and eventually shuts down the pc. I did notice in the procceses that there is 2 listings of explorer one called explorer.exe and the other being iexplorer.exe. Does anyone know how i could stop this from doing this?

Cheers

explorer.exe is Windows Explorer, iexplore.exe is Internet Explorer.

Try Start, Run, type

sfc /scannow

and click OK.

This didnt work on my system.... all i got was a dos box that popped up for less than a second and that was it. I am running xp pro with service pack 2.
